Eleven Clemson students, including seven students from the B.F.A. and M.F.A. programs, traveled to Italy in May to study with Kathleen Thum, Clemson’s professor of drawing. Every other year, the art department offers students a chance to immerse themselves in another art culture during a four-week summer school located in Orvieto, Italy with day trips to other cities such as Rome, Florence and Venice. Activities include visits to historically significant art works, classes in Italian language, immersion in Italian culture as well as participation in the studio practice of on-site drawing and journaling. Students gain a good sense of contemporary and historically significant artworks and a portfolio full of inspiration and drawings.
